Thanksgiving In June (In August) 2019-Part 3

Over the course of the past month, I've turned up and recorded a few more Thanksgiving songs to add to the 24 I gave you back at the end of June before I jumped into Christmas In July.  These additional 6 songs will bring that total up to 30, so I'm back up to my ten songs per share average. I'm anal that way.

1. Mouseketeer Ensemble-How Lucky We Are from Happy Birthday And Songs For Every Holiday (Disneyland DQ-1214, Mono, 1964).  If I didn't tell you this was the Thanksgiving selection from this LP, you probably wouldn't peg it as a Thanksgiving tune.  Certainly patriotic though.

2. Bing Crosby With Bob Crosby And His Orchestra-I've Got Plenty To Be Thankful For from Holiday Inn-Bing's Hollywood (Decca DL 4256, Mono, 1962).  It's called Holiday Inn, so they've got to celebrate all sorts of holidays, not just Christmas.

3. George Feyer, Piano And Harpsichord, With Rhythm Accompaniment-Turkey In The Straw from Echoes Of Childhood-For Children Six To Sixty-Six (Vox 10" 33 RPM VX 710, Mono, 1964).  A tiny snippet of a side-long medley from keyboard king George Feyer.

4. Paradesters Orchestra And Chorus-Overture; The Big Clown Balloons; Parade from Meredith Willson's Here's Love (Columbia Masterworks KOS 2400, Stereo, 1963).  Someday I hope to make it to see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in person.  Not sure how I can do that without fighting the crowds and the cold, but I'll find a way.

5. & 6. Sing & Learn-Thanksgiving Song & The Turkey Stroll, both from Holiday Songs (Macmillan Educational Company MBCI-09003, Stereo, 1987).  Not sure how Thanksgiving scored two tracks on this holiday album.  I think it was the only day that was celebrated twice.

And that's it, a short selection, but it helps me empty out my folder.  Here's the download link.  Not much left in that folder now, by the way, but there is a bit.  Stay tuned...

Thanks again for all of your hard work. You do make the season more enjoyable, even in the middle of summer.

Just think how far ahead of the game you'll be when Christmas actually gets here! :)
